On a few occasions, more frequent during Welcome to Night Vale's second and third year, Joseph Fink's usual opening announcements were read by other members of the Welcome to Night Vale production team. Each time the voice would insist they were Joseph Fink, despite the (purported) real Joseph Fink's claims to the contrary.
It was not until Old Oak Doors Part A that the real Joseph Fink did the announcements, writing off the previous Joseph Finks as imposters that spread across the world while he was locked in a room. He was finally released in Old Oak Doors Part B.
